Beverly Hills is on a mission to be the healthiest city in the world. Nestled between the mountains and the sea, the Los Angeles enclave so often associated with shopping is transforming into the global nucleus of meditation, clean eats and fitness. Your health is your greatest wealth, which is why the city recently launched its City of WELLTH campaign with American icon Christie Brinkley as its ambassador.
“Californians are highly ahead of the curb and Beverly Hills is the peak clean urban environment. It’s the easiest place to stick to your healthy routine. I love to go hiking in the hills surrounded by beauty—to smell the eucalyptus and see the bougainvillea,” says the legendary model.
Snapping into a healthy routine goes way beyond eating right and hitting the gym, which is why we spoke with leading influencers who are rich in WELLTH to find out where they like to practice wellness in Beverly Hills.
JW: Alo Yoga. They have great coffee, kombucha, and yoga! Couple that with an amazing outdoor roofdeck and it makes for a great wellness go-to! The gardens at the Beverly Hills Hotel are also an unbelievably lush and the perfect way to relax.

DC: Sometimes we forget that art is a part of wellness, and I find visual inspiration everywhere in Beverly Hills. I love visiting the Gagosian Gallery and even walking by the Yayoi Kusama tulip garden (Beverly Gardens Park) is always refreshing.

CA: I obviously love Alo because I work here and we are so much more than just a studio. But whether I visit the Transcendental Meditation Center or the dog park, the people here are vibrating at a higher level.

MK: I love the clean, beautiful urban environment of Beverly Hills. I love walking and being on the street in this city. I’d suggest taking a walk along the city’s streets to begin a wellthy experience in Beverly Hills.

JD: Coming from the UK, I’m stoked to be opening Bodyism here in Beverly Hills next year. The rooftop of the Peninsula always makes me feel very blessed to be here and lets me seep into humanity by osmosis.
